Article note: Interesting drops. OS/2 is only used in places that got trapped, and they don't want to touch it, but it's still faintly surprising that one of the big trapped entities didn't bankroll the development work. AmigaOS ...I'm surprised, the rabid Amiga people keep that ecosystem first-class amazingly beyond it's sell-by date. Xenix is for historical interest only, and immiscible with anything modern, it's more surprising it was still in there.
GNU Make 4.4 is here, and it has some interesting – and sad – news for some of the old operating systems we still cover on OSNews. Sadly, support for OS/2 (EMX), AmigaOS, Xenix, and Cray will be dropped from the next release of Make. Now, I’m not entirely sure just how many users of these operating systems even use Make, but for those of you that do – tough cookie right here.
